Why fake suppressor?
#1
Tanners listed a sale on a Berretta .22 with fake suppressor.

Why would anyone want a fake suppressor? Or is it on the .22 so you can practice shooting with it on so you can move up to a bigger gun with a real suppressor?

So you can be tacticool. Cool

I have a inert one that came with the SBX barrel I got for the 10/22, I put it on there to balance it out until my paperwork clears.

Wouldn't having a fake one tend to get you turned in or something? Or do people generally assume that if you have one, you have the correct paperwork?

I think suppressors are cool, but not because they look cool, just because they SOUND cool.....I would never want a fake one. haha. But that's just me! I would love to shoot with a real one sometime.

Check with your local class 3 dealer, Nationals here in Jersey Shore does supressor demos quite often.

The only reason I have one is because it comes with the barrel.
Oddly enough I have never had anyone ask me for paperwork for the other one. Even at my range they comment but don't give it a second thought...just "hey look, what caliber is that?" and "they don't sound like that in the movies!".

Fake suppressors are bad news across the board. I've seen some designs that are like tongue in cheek designed to be fake almost like "solvent trap adapters", but are really made to accept baffles you can drill out that are sold separately to get you in all kinds of trouble with "constructive possession" with the ATF at the very least just by having the two. There was one "fake suppressor" being marketed to airsoft guys that actually was functional with the sold seperately baffles installed that was taken off the market. There was also prepper guy who got nailed a year or two ago when his ex wife called the police on him saying he was unstable. It was in Massachusetts and his name was Greg something as I recall if you want to try to find it. Anyway come to find out while the local PD made it seem as if they caught a terrorist in the media with all the guns and ammo he had, but most of the stuff he owned was perfectly legal to have. Unfortunately, one of the items he had was a fake suppressor and while the DA was throwing shit at the wall trying to make something stick they tested his "fake suppressor" and found that just by elongating the barrel with no baffles the fake suppressor dropped the noise of his gun by like 3 or 5 DB which is almost nothing...but in the eyes of the law...they made it into a gigantic mess for him.

I could sort of see maybe some mil-sim airsoft guy wanting a fake suppressor, but for anyone that owns a real firearm owning one of those things is a recipe to put you in a world of shit.
